Data Management Challenges

Rapid data growth stresses backup window Protect


Data Growth vs.
rapidly growing data in a shorter period. Traditional method of
Backup Windows shifting everything from front to back falls short.

Fast restores and rapid DR are critical Avoid tradeoff


Balance DR /
between fast restore/DR and cost. Hardware-based
Recovery SLAs vs. replication is expensive and doesnt offer a persistent copy.
Time & Cost Tape solutions are slow and difficult to manage.

Significant amount of data is generated remotely


Data at the Edges Consolidate & protect data over WAN in central location.
(Remote & Mobile) Different recovery and retention needs per site while
managing data centrally is challenging.

Economically scale solution to keep pace with growth -


Ability to Scale
Once solution capacity is reached, can it be expanded
Cost Effectively without spending millions of dollars?
